NEP student Julie Larsen wins Outstanding Doctoral Presentation Award

Julie Larsen studied how exercise can improve brain function in recent breast cancer survivors. She studied survivors for 12 weeks and found a pattern of greater cognitive improvement among participants in the aerobic exercise group than among those in the control group, especially on tests of attention and processing speed, executive function and verbal fluency.

Larsen presented her findings at the 2016 American College of Sports Medicine Northwest Annual Meeting.
